Weee!

I just ordered some new coilovers, and have a clutch kit, flywheel, and timing belt kit coming soon as well. Oh the joys of spending money, eh?

The wife isn't too happy about it, but meh, that's how car ownership goes, it could be worse though. I could be like Bo. ;)

The only semi unexpected thing is the brakes. This damn 06 WRX eats brake pads in the front. Since new, the inners wear out a lot faster than the outers. I currently have 3/8" on the outer pads and 3/16"-1/8" (they taper) on the inners. On top of it this will be the 4th set in 78,000 miles. I've never had a car soo brake pad hungry, and I'm nicer to this one then my old cars.

I have decided to skip the tranny fluid this time and save $100. Gonna run the Extra-S to 30k

Yeah the Extra-S is $89+tax swapped out at the local subi shop, but I do'nt have time to go there, or Amsoil is $15 a qt, or Motul 75w90 is $19 a liter. 5 qts including rear diff = ~ $100
